Dirt-Powered Soil Lamp!

We’ve seen a slew of solar-powered lamps in the last couple years but this is the very first time “dirt”, (yes, the stuff that’s on your ground) has been used to power a lamp.  We wonder how long this will go, specifically when it will be available to the consumers.

How to Track Your Sleep Patterns on the Web using FitBit!

Now, I’ve seen a slew of sleep gadgets that can track your sleep patterns but this FitBit is the very first one that tracks your sleep patterns via their free website.  (Of course, you do have to pay for the gadget itself, but by having the patterns managed online, they don’t have to spend more money on memory hardware and plus, you’d have almost infinite storage for your sleep patterns.)

Overall, I’d give this device an A+.  It’s not for your stubborn people but

It consisted of a collapsible white fabric box with a hole in the front and 3 lights – used for photographing small objects in photog

The user-accessible screws on the new iPhone 3G might be an indication of user-changeable batteries. (although we highly doubt Apple would do that)

As previously noted, Apple’s new “guided tour” of the iPhone 3G demonstrates operation of the AppStore and a slew of already-detailed functionality. Closer inspection of the video has unveiled a few more revelations.
